Khuda Aawaz Mofatana – The Movie Review
Khuda aur Mohabbat is a romantic song composed by Sukhwinder Singh. Imaan, daughter of Moulvi Aleem and Hardik Hassar is meant to be forever together, but destiny has other ideas. Khuda aur Mohabbat is the tale of Hardik’s quest for the ultimate truth, spirituality and love. The lyrics tell about his beautiful childhood in the “Happydirect” (traditional Lucknow dialect) of the Punjab province. It depicts his lovely relationship with his foster-father, his mother’s unconditional adoration for him, and his deep spiritual belief that he has inherited the legacy of his forefathers.
Now, the musical drama revolves around his life in the foster-mother’s house after he moves away from his birth town. The drama then witnesses the young man’s gradual unraveling of the mystery surrounding his real family. Some excellent supporting cast also includes Sharena Tuteja, Prem Chopra, Jazzy B, Bikaiah Khan and Shazahn Padamsee. The major supporting characters include:
“Kham Sik Teeka”, the first part of the play, focuses on Hardik’s struggle to accept his real parent’s legacy and the subsequent turmoil that come between him and his two sisters, Saleema and Fatima. The second part, which is called “Nusukh Chashm-E-Choli”, revolves around the search of the amulet given to Hardik by his foster-father at the beginning of the play. This amulet will grant wishes if the child who carries it can locate the hidden object within a certain time. The children have the power to locate the amulet; however Saleema and Fatima are the only two capable of doing so. The rest of the play traces the journey of Hardik and his quest to find the amulet.
The play concludes with a reunion of Saleema and her sister, Fatima. The two girls find out that the amulet they had found is really a firdous Jamal. The owner of the firdous Jamal then intends to resell it to the owner of the amulet, Hardik, in order to recover some money. When Saleema and Fatima go to ask for their share of the money, they discover that the owner has been killed. He had been killed by one of the suspects in their case, whom Saleema and her sister had been searching for. The play concludes with a disturbing murder mystery that leaves the audience in suspense.
The first episode of khuda aur mohabbat is very enjoyable and entertaining. The rhythm of the play is very repetitive. There are a number of scenes from the past and present, interspersed with a few present-day scenes. The storyline is typical and follows a familiar pattern, but it’s nevertheless effective. The director tries to add some twists here and there, but the overall theme is based on familial relationships and love.
The second season of khuda aur Mohabbat has more conflict and far more drama. The story is more dramatic, and follows a different plot line than the first season. There are more twists and turns, and the lead characters involved (Saleema, Hardik, and other minor characters) are given more complex personalities. The plot is also more complex, with various groups fighting for control of the magical kingdom.
The second season of khuda aur Mohabbat features some remarkable songs, which once again take us back to the tradition of masnawi. The songs help us to understand the intricate details of the relationship between Saleema and Hardik. The music is mainly composed by Firdous Jamal, who did the music for the first season. This time around, Saleema and Hardik’s relationship goes through intense religious fanatics, who try to stop the two from fulfilling their destiny and moving in together.
The music is mostly in D basse, but it does occasionally reach a medium A grade. It is also better known as medium B grade. The songs, mainly focusing on Saleema and Hardik’s relationship, are very emotional and soothing. Most of them are not very melodic, but that is what makes them so great. The songs tell us how the characters feel, what they want, and how hard their lives are made of. Overall, Khuda aur Mohabbat is a must-see movie, if only for its excellent first season.
